    Antoine Poiteau (1766-1854) and Pierre Jean François Turpin (1775-1840). Four Prints: Griotte à ratafia. [and:] Cerise à bouquets. [and:] Fraise des Alpes. [and:] Fraisier hétérophylle.

    Four hand-colored stipple engravings of luscious cherries and strawberries, most likely from Pomologie française; recueil des plus beaux fruits cultivés en France (Paris: 1846). All are in generally very good condition. Griotte à ratafia (the only print in this lot attributed to Turpin) has a pin-hole in the image area, some offsetting to top and right margins, and tape repairs to the reverse. Cerise à bouquets has darkened edges, shallow creasing to top right corner, and tape repairs to reverse. Fraise des Alpes has a large area of faint foxing just below the bottom platemark, a couple of tiny pin holes at the bottom platemark, a three-inch folded notch at the top edge without any paper loss, and tape repairs to reverse. Fraisier hétérophylle has a thin mat burn and a half-inch closed tear to the right side. All prints have very minor spotting and somewhat ragged edges with several short tears around the perimeters. All measure approximately 14.25 x 21.5 inches.
